Here's a shorter version using the build-in dojo.hash() and dojo.queryToObject() function:

var hashUrlVars = dojo.queryToObject( dojo.hash() );

And if you want to update the hash:

var hashUrlVars = dojo.queryToObject( dojo.hash() );
hashUrlVars['myNewHashParam'] = "someValues";
dojo.hash( dojo.objectToQuery(hashUrlVars) );
